Hi,

I now have the following setup

NTL Cable modem connected to router which in turn is connected to a pc
running XP and a acorn running 3.5 - with the netsurf browser to test before
a purchase a commercial package.

I think I've configured everthing on the riscpc as it can access the
router's config page under the browser as well as ping it

The problem is that I cannot access any web pages from riscos or ping the pc
but the pc can ping the riscpc machine

Any ideas?

If you've got 3.5, are you running the Universal Boot or the one that's
always been there?

Whichever, it sounds like you are lacking DNS numbers. And possibly a
Gateway address. Both should be that of the router.

Cheers

Mike

At a guess, you haven't set the default network route through your router.
Try doing Ctrl+F12, then *route add default <router address>

If that doesn't work, you could maybe paste the output from *inetstat -r here
- this shows your routing tables, eg. mine starts:

*inetstat -r
Routing tables

Internet:
Destination Gateway Flags Refs Use Netif Expire
default router UGSc 7 0 eh0

Under RiscOS I have set the following

Under Internet - interfaces
Hope this helps

I have the i-cubed EtherLan600 ticked and configured with: -
IP address 192.168.2.101
Netmask 255.255.255.0
IP Address set to manual

Under Internet - Routing
Gateway set to 192.168.2.1
nothing else ticked

Under Internet - Host names
Host name Frodo
Name resolver Acorn
Use name servers also
Hostfile contains the following: -
192.168.2.1 Router
192.168.2.100 Gandalf
192.168.2.101 Frodo

Running *inetstat -r gives the following: -
Routing tables

Internet:
Destination Gateway Flags Refs Use Netif Expire
default router UGSc 0 0 eh0
loopback loopback UH 1 2 lo0
192.168.2 link#2 UC 0 0
router link#2 UHLW 1 0
gandalf 0:50:8d:50:e2:3f UHLW 0 4 eh0 1020

You haven't told it what the nameservers actually *are*, though, have
you? Also, the Hosts file names can be case sensitive, so put in lower
case rather than (or as well as, it doesn't actually matter) what you
have. The thing that isn't in the hosts file you list is

127.0.0.1 loopback localhost loghost

Which was there when you first had it, but I guess must be there
Missing from the above is the "other end" of the subnet. Also, you've
not pinged the router, I guess. For comparison, mine is:

*inetstat -r
Routing tables

Internet:
Destination Gateway Flags Refs Use Netif Expire
default ipcop UGSc 0 0 ex0
loopback loopback UH 6 849 lo0
192.168.2 link#2 UC 0 0
ipcop 0:a0:c9:30:e0:ec UHLW 2 5 ex0 1192
192.168.2.255 link#2 UHLW 4 100
*

Purely by chance, I use 192.168.2.x too, and my router (in effect) is
called "ipcop".

As I mentioned before, I'd recommend installing the Universal Boot, if
only because the Internet stuff in that is more solid and configurable
than in vanilla 3.5.

Cheers

Mike
